viewer for capella university. matter. education is the key. it is the vehicle. it's the way in which we evolve. every journey is different every possibility is unique. but the beginning, the beginning is my craft. i'm an ordinary person striving to achieve extraordinary things. it started with a dream and i'm on my way there. [ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation on your radio and on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: karl rove accuses commerce secretary john bryson >> bill: 32 days in this presidential election. the first presidential debate is over. did it change anything? what do you say? hello, everybody. great to see you today. here we go. on a big thursday. thursday october 4. the morning after. and the post-debate goes on. we'll be into it for the next three hours here on the "full court press" coming to you live from our nation's capital and booming out to you on your local progressive talk radio station on sirius x.m. this hour only and on current tv, of course. good to have you w
view. i think we've got to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure we're helping small businesses and companies that are investing here in the united states. that we take some of the money that we're saving as we wind down two wars to rebuild america. and that we reduce our deficit in a balanced way that allows us to make these critical investments. now, it ultimately is going to be up to the voters, to you which path we should take. are we going to double down on the top-down economic policies that helped to get us into this mess or do we embrace a new economic patriotism that says america does best when the middle-class does best? and i'm looking forward to having that debate. >> lehrer: governor romney two minutes. >> thank you jim it's an honor to be here with you and i appreciate the chance to be with the president. i'm pleased to be at the university of denver, appreciate their welcome and also the presidential commission on these debates. and congratulations to you
about tonight? >> i think that president barack obama did a wonderful job tonight. education was very important. i would love to be evidence in my children to a better school but at the moment that are not accessible. things were not looking good for mitt romney. it was quite natural for him to come out there and be very defensive, as he was denied to the next few weeks will be very crucial with the election being rider on the corner. i totally support barack obama, and we will go through it to the finish line. >> i think president barack obama really held his composure. there may have been times that he wanted to get frustrated or upset that he really held himself. i commend him for not getting upset and showing his frustration. it is only the first debate and we still have the vice- presidential debate. the republicans should not get so uppity with this whole thing because it was the first debate. governor mitt romney had to really come out there and show himself because it has not been looking at good for him the last few weeks. i don't think president barack obama did anything wro
. we need more investment in skills and education. the irony, of course is that what romney proposes, or tax cuts for the rich, slashing government, slashing help for precisely those who need it, slashing government's role in infrastructure, in science and technology, would take us so far away from what we need, i wish president obama had the revenues to do more, but it is the republican side that is blocking that because that party has one idea only. and that is to cut taxes for the rich. we have this multi-brazilian there running for office. his money is in the cayman island. he pays 13% in taxes. he says the most important thing is to cut the tax rates at the top for the. it is mind-boggling that we have this kind of blatant candidacy. people are hurting, people are upset. that is why this weirdness even has a choice. but it would take as exactly in the wrong direction. president obama could have done more and would have done more if the republican opposition had not blocked the end of the bush era tax cuts for the rich, for example. so romney is in quite a position to be blaming
of education. and the troops to enforce the victory down in little rock. at that point, the democrats had to pretend to care about civil rights. the first civil rights legislation pushed by a democrat -- far more republicans voted for it. it was about 80% republicans. they had voted for every other civil-rights bill. they were liberal democrats. albert gore sr. all of these characters were ferocious opponents of joe mccarthy. robert byrd had 100% rating. do not believe the light they were conservative democrats. there was one of 18 liberal democratic segregationist who became a republican and that was strom thurmond. robert byrd had 100% rating. this line is pulled off by describing the entire south as if it was one state. republicans secretly appealed the democratic segregationist and suddenly we swept the south. republicans took the south when the dixiecrats died out. republicans had been winning the outer southern states since the 1920's. warren harding did pretty well. eisenhower twice. this was before 1964. reagan lost the dixiecrat states. reagan did best with college students, the
for energy policy, education, for jobs. that came across really strong. one comment about $90 billion given to bring jobs where we could have hired 2 million teachers really made a huge difference on that, too. president obama looks like he was uncomfortable. he did not look like he wanted to be there. mitt romney had a good night. whether that will show up at the polls is another story. i think mitt romney has a good shot now. if they get mitt romney in there, it is a win for a america, too. host: of next is bernard in south carolina. hello. caller: how are you doing? i do not understand what the caller was saying because mitt romney did not explain anything. he kept saying he knew how to do it, but he never said how he was going to do it. he brought up a lot about what obama had done, but what is he going to do? if he has a plan to do something, it seems like he ought to lay that plan out for the american people so he can say what he is going to do. to me he is not saying anything. thank you for taking my call this morning. people need to look at the facts and what he is saying before the
or may not have had a high school civics education course. those opportunities are not distributed well in the united states. we cannot assume that young person has had the opportunity to discuss those issues and get registered to vote in my high- school. host: ted joins us from indiana, on our independent color line. are you with us? virginia,n to west democrat line. caller: this is arthur. the corporations are driving the media and that is where we are getting our information from. i have two small kids, one is 1- year-old and the other is four years old. my income is $14,000 per year and don't use food stamps. i hope that this country starts seeing that we don't need to be republican or democrat. we need to be americans. most importantly, you have to look at the president about when he uses a veto and signs laws. he can only sign into law was put in front of him through the congress and the senate and that is where i feel all the problems are at with the donations to campaigns, for the corporations. if you look at wal-mart, they have their factories in china and they pay 13 cents per
they provided through their children's programming for almost 50 years some of the finest educational content worldwide for our nation's children? absolutely. does it deserve to be on the chopping block? >> that's the word i was looking for. chopping block. thank you for helping me out. >> chopping block. here is -- here's something i would like to point out, soledad. i know in this current economic climate we have to make different choices. however, i was raised by a woman whose philosophy it was to give her children the best education she could not afford. do you understand what i'm saying? >> value in the free. >> we have to make the investment in our children if we expect for them to pay off on that investment through their realizing their most full potential. so there are places where you can cut. there are places where you need to cut. there are places that you just don't cut because it is not right. >> for you that would be pbs. lavar burton, of course, was host andive and producer -- xifr producer of "reading rainbow." you heard mitt romney backtracking on the 47% remark. he says now

the right wing, how. whenever the president named a popular policy, more spending on education, more money on medicare, he was for it and he would attack the president for things that were unpopular. so the question becomes can you effectively tie mitt romney to the republican party and its core commitments, both how it acts in the house and the things he has said during the republican debates. and that never really happened tonight. but those of course are the facts of the matter. the idea that mitt romney won't cut taxes on people at the high end of the income scale apreposterous. i think you would agree. obviously if the republicans get into power they are going to cut taxes at the high income and he got on stage tonight and said no. >> romney's problem is that this debate is in 2012, not 1812. we have things we can hit a button to show what he has said before. no doubt mitt romney was at his best tonight but his best is not good enough. when you look at the fact that he's saying that taxes will not go up on the middle class, yet he is proposing all the way through this campaign, dealin
bit more accountability. i think if we curtailed some of that and put that towards education and infrastructure -- governor romney says we are going to build a 12 million jobs. what are you going to do? are they just going to come about? >> are you voting for governor romney? >> no, i am not. i'm voting for president obama again. >> charlottesville. go ahead with your comments. >> yes -- >> charlottesville, make sure you mute your television and then go ahead with your comments by otherwise there is a feedback. charlottesville, are you there? >> yeah, i am there. i am an independent voter. i moved to this country five years ago. i was a legal immigrant. when i came here, like president obama says, when we were caught, i did not have nothing to i worked so hard. i got the support of the government, and i am now a biochemistry major and in pre- med. governor romney is not telling the truth, like the president said. yes, he did not perform very well last night, but he was saying the truth. if you are president, if you are a candidate, you owe people the truth, because the truth
education to lead, while you're still in school, you might find the best route leads somewhere you weren't even looking. let's get to work. >>> the romney campaign is flying high literally and figuratively after a strong showing in last night's presidential debate. cnn national political correspondent jim acosta has the latest. jim. >> reporter: wolf, flying to virginia mitt romney will spend much of the day after the first presidential debate up in the air. but for the first time in weeks the state of his campaign is not. mitt romney took his victory lap after the first presidential debate receiving a sustained standing ovation during a surprise visit to a conference of conservatives in denver. >> i saw the president's vision as trickled down government. and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> reporter: it didn't take long after the debate was finished for the romney campaign to turn the spin room into the win room. are you declaring victory, jim, if this was a boxing match, the referee would have called it. after taki
's office politics. >> this is an interview that was 100% about education policy. so i really had to do my homework. if you are going to try to ask questions of somebody who has been dealing with, and administering education policy for basically the last four years, i tried to do a little bit of homework. so that was the hardest part, probably. the second hardest part is more logistical. when you interview the president, or a presidential candidate, they usually give you a very short amount of time. in this case, i think we had 15 minutes. and you'd be surprised, you may not, but most people would be surprised how quickly that goes. i mean, that's really just four or five questions, depending on how lengthy the answers are. now, i did go a little over the time limit. i ended up going 20 to 22 minutes. >> so how does he end it? does somebody come in and say we're done? >> it's a funny little behind-the-scenes thing. sometimes, i think it's just known that you'll go a little bit past the time limit. the white house understands that. we understand that. you can do it within reason. so when i
- college educated white women as a group that has moved some in the last couple of weeks. non-college educated white men are a no-fly zone for the president. but the women were up for grabs. have you noticed anything like that? is that a metric you are looking at? >> it is. everybody talks about the women's vote. there are a number of factors. people do not realize this -- john mccain won white women by seven points. that is not enough to win overall. obviously, he lost by seven points. when you look at white women voters, there are groups that are more likely to vote republican. those include white women without college degrees, white women who are married, and women with children. when you look at the differences between white women who are married and white women who are single, whether it be they are not married, they are widowed, or they are divorced, those groups vote overwhelmingly for obama. if ron is right and the president is making gains with non-college educated white women, that is problematic for our side. i have not seen as much as -- as much of a shift as he ha
in college after the cultural revolution. this was the most liberal era in china's educational system. they were exposed to western ideas he reads english right well. now that is a wonderful opportunity. this also could be a problem because if we fail to understand, this is a generation, because of their personal experience, they do not want the electorate. they will be more conducive with giving reasoning. you just use force to intimidate them and they will react strongly. what i said is important. that if we use force, just a single-minded lecture, we're not resonating very well. they will react strongly, the hu jintao generation. i do not know if you watch the interview. this is 15 years ago. he interviewed -- in "60 minutes." michael wallace points his finger and says you're a dictator. several times he said that. he laughed. after many years, people thought his approach was very smart. it made michael wallace embarrassed. if you do the same thing with xi jinping, it will be a disaster. we need to know this kind of mindset, this kind of experience. that is why what henry kissinger
four years, in terms of our education system, developing american energy or making sure we're closing loopholes for companies that are shipping jobs overseas or focusing on companies creating jobs here in the united states, or closing our deficit in a balanced way, all those things are designed to make sure that the american people, their genius, their grit, their determination is channelled and they have an opportunity to succeed. and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody is doing a fair share and playing by the same rules. you know, four years ago i said that i'm not a perfect man and i wouldn't be a perfect president and that's probably a promise that governor romney thinks i've kept. but i also promised that i would fight every single day on behalf of the american people, the middle class and all those who are striving to get into the middle class. i've kept that promise and if you vote for me, i promise i'll fight just as hard in the second term. >> governor romney? >> thank you jim, mr. president and thank you for tuning in this evening. this is an important election an
